Library 2020: Today's Leading Visionaries Describe Tomorrow's Library

Janes, Joseph (ed.). Library 2020: Today's Leading Visionaries Describe Tomorrow's Library. Scarecrow Press, 2013. ISBN: 978-0-8108-8714-5

Joseph Janes has assembled an impressive set of essays from today's leading library enthusiasts to discuss their vision for libraries into the future. Contributors were asked to describe the “library of 2020,” in whatever terms they wanted, either a specific library or situation or libraries in general. They were told: “be bold, be inspirational, be hopeful, be true, be provocative, be realistic, be depressing, be light-hearted, be thoughtful, be fun…be yourself, and for heaven’s sake, don’t be boring.”
